1 Critic Note
Product not in wishlist

In stock

Arneis (ah-nase) is an aromatic Italian white AKA ‘The Little Rascal’, because it can be a bit of a troublemaker in the vineyard. It’s bright and fragrant like a mountain breeze and as elegant as an Italian supermodel.

Region: Yarra Valley

Alc/Vol: 11%

Smells like: White peach, lemongrass and salted cashews 

Tastes like: Lemon blossom and nashi pear. Textural and mouth-watering with a fine, dry finish

Goes with: Italian fennel coleslaw, crab linguini, barbecued calamari. A motorboat on Lake Como


Wine making:

The 2019 vintage had low rainfall and above-average temperatures providing lower fruit yield, but a powerful fruit intensity.

• 100% Yarra Valley fruit
• Harvested in March 2019
• Destemmed and gently pressed
• 50% stainless steel fermentation to retain freshness
• 50% was fermented in mature French oak to build texture
• Six months of maturation and lees stirring
• Cellar up to four years, but why wait?


Critics’ tasting notes

  1. ★★★★

    “Delicate lift of honeysuckle-like fragrances and good length of light crisp citrus-driven flavours with nice acid line.”
